BOC Prepares to Implement a 24/7 Online Processing Payment System
The Bureau of Customs (BOC), through the Management Information System and Technology Group (MISTG), will be fully implementing the Philippine Clearing House Corporation (PCHC) Payment Application Secure System Version 6.0 (PASS 6) in its Electronic to Mobile (E2M) system on Oct. 1 which also allows the 24/7 processing of payments for stakeholders transacting through selected banks.
The BOC E2M System that enables stakeholders to access the services of the Bureau, anywhere and any time, will be integrated with the PASS 6 for efficient payment facilitation. Stakeholders who pay duties and taxes through Security Bank, Landbank, Asia United Bank, and Metropolitan Bank and Trust Company will be the first to experience the round-the-clock payment service which can even be accessed from the comfort of their homes. Roll-out to other banks is also currently in the works.
BOC Commissioner Yogi Filemon Ruiz expedites the digitalization of Customs services as he leads the Bureau in its modernization programs and initiatives. This is aligned with the administration’s 8-Point Socioeconomic Agenda and directives of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to modernize infrastructures and systems to increase trade operational efficiencies to promote the growth of the Philippine economy.
